White Chocolate-Covered Strawberry "Carrots"

Everyone loves a treat now and then and how cute are these?  These carrot-shaped Easter treats won't please any bunny, but they will satisfy anyone with a sweet tooth. You can also make spring themed ones by using sprinkles.  Serve them up at your Easter or Spring Party celebration.

White Chocolate-Covered Strawberry "Carrots"

1 pound strawberries, cleaned, dried, with leaves left on
8 ounces Almond bark
Spring themed sprinkles
orange food coloring (I prefer paste)

Chill strawberries. When ready to dip, heat your almond bark in a microwave safe bowl 15 seconds at a time or you can place in a double boiler to melt. 
 Grab strawberry by the stem and dip into the melted almond bark. 
 Gently shake the excess off. 
Add sprinkles and hold strawberry in the air until the almond bark cools and hardens some.  Since your berries are chilled it won't take long. This helps prevent a large puddle of bark under your berry.
For "carrots," color your almond bark as orange as you like. Remember you can always add more color but you can't take away. 
Dip strawberries the same as you did for the ones with sprinkles. 
Enjoy!

    1. I was dipping the sprinkles ones and thought that the shape looked like those fat round carrots and the tops were green. It was meant to be!

  14. Strawberries & Chocolate together, you can't go wrong. Thanks for sharing. How do you keep the chocolate smooth w/o the clumpy?

    1. It's almond bark. It's a little less temperamental than actual chocolate. You also have to shake it off quickly if you use the chilled strawberries.
